Offered is the July 25, 1955 "AFM Engineering Corporation" invoice for the original 78 RPM record stampers that produced the first copies of Elvis Presley's single Sun 223 "Mystery Train" / "I Forgot to Remember to Forget". The invoice lists the client as "MONARCH (SUN)"--Monarch was the Los Angeles label responsible for producing Elvis Presley's Sun records in 1954 and 1955. The invoice is for stampers "U-156" and "U-157", the matrix numbers for Elvis' final Sun single. The late July date indicates these are the very first stampers because the single was released just more than a week later in early August. This is an incredible artifact from the seminal period in Elvis' recording career. "Mystery Train" was the regional hit that garnered Elvis the national exposure leading to his being sold to RCA just a few months later. The invoice is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the "Elvis Presley Museum" signed by legendary Elvis collector and expert Jimmy Velvet. The invoice measures 8 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches and presnts with expected filing wear, including a small area of paper loss at the top. Near Mint condition.
